In brief: No

Losec (omeprazole) aka Omeprazole or Prilosec (omeprazole) is a proton pump inhibitor that decreases production of stomach acid.
It has no effect of celiac disease. If losec (omeprazole) is helping you then you either don't have celiac disease or you have both celiac disease and a hyperacid state causing peptic ulcer, duodenal ulcer, or esophagitis.
